Directions:

Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Crumble the ground meat into the hot pan, and cook until evenly browned.

Pour in the beans, crushed tomatoes and sauce. Add onion, celery, green and red bell peppers, stock and tequila or beer. Season with chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, cumin, coriander, cocoa, espresso, sugar and salt & pepper to taste. Stir to blend, then cover and simmer over low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. After 2 hours, taste, and adjust salt, pepper, and additional chili powder if necessary. The longer the chili simmers, the better it tastes.

Serve in regular bowls or bread bowls topped with your favorite toppings such as; shredded cheese, sour cream, green or red onions, corn chips—your choice.
